VALLEY FARM VINEYARDS were established in 1987, expanded in 1992 and sold in 2014 to the current owners - Elaine Heeler and Vanessa Tucker who relocated to Suffolk to run the Vineyard after earlier careers in the public sector. They trained at Plumpton and Myerscough respectively and undertook a 'stickability' test by cycling south through Chile in December 2012- January 2013! This was as tough as it sounds but included some wonderful wine samples! Elaine recently achieved a merit at Level 3 with WSET. In 2015 the Madeleine Angevine achieved a prestigeous UKVA (now WinesGB) gold medal, putting it in the top 10%. Now, January 2018, we are beginning to reap the rewards of 5 years hard work as we prune the well structured vines.
The Vineyards specialise in producing quality grapes for still white and Rose, sparkling white, still blush and sparkling blush. The Madeleine Angevine is the grape in the still wine whilst the Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir most often go into the sparkling wine. An extra squeeze from the latter gives the blush finish to some vintages.
All the wines produced are single estate and can be bought at the 'cellar door' or delivered to your door.
